In general, I would recommend using a fake windows install, of for no 
other reason than to prevent messing up the real one. Just copy over 
interesting files; mainly fonts and DLLs.

There is no configuration to be done for networking. The best thing to 
do is to first try an app that is known to work in Wine. For example, 
download a copy of WinMX. If that works, but your other apps don't, then 
there is likely a bug in Wine.
